5 Home Design Bloggers We Love
16 March 2017, by Design A House Sign
As the seasons change, so do trends in home decor. With this in mind, it can be difficult to keep up with fashions for patterns and colour, so it's always good to start looking online for inspiration. There are a number of blogs online that can provide inspiration and offer up some great design ideas. We have selected some of our favourite interior design bloggers that are based in the UK to help you find the inspiration you need.
One of our favourite home design blogs comes from Carole King, an interior designer, writer, and self-confessed design junkie. Her blog, Dear Designer, was started in 2009 and provided a space to collect and share various inspirations. The blog has since become hugely popular for its interior design tips and info about the latest design trends.
Carole's 'Moodboard Monday' series is a great place to start if you're looking for some design inspiration. However, if you've already decorated but want to spruce up for Spring, you'll also enjoy her simple guides to implementing key trends in your home and her spotlights on UK high-street stores.

Design Hunter is another great blog that was launched in 2009. It was started by Helen Powell to record the latest in design for home and interiors. The blog focuses on understated minimal designs and also curates a careful selection of the most stylish and beautiful spaces, too.
Helen founded the website and has been featured in a number of publications including The Sunday Times and The Independent. She has also won awards for her blog including ‘Best Luxury Blog’ award at the Amara Interior Blog Awards. If you are looking for a minimalist style in your home then this is definitely the blog for you.

A fantastic blog that features an interesting mix of eye-catching design and general home inspiration tips. The blog features bold and extravagant designs and encourages its readers to embrace their personalities and reflect this in their home. You can expect to see vibrant colours, animal prints, gold finishes and often rather decadent design inspiration. There are also posts that focus on more topical content, such as organising your makeup collection.
Swoon Worthy was created by Kimberly Duran in 2010 after she decorated her Edwardian house using her own DIY skills. Her approach to contemporary design proves popular with a lot of people who are looking for something different to many of the minimalist design blogs.

If you are looking for design tips on how to decorate and fill your home on a budget then this might be the perfect blog for you. The blog is filled with loads of DIY and craft ideas and gives some great advice on how you can decorate on a low budget. The author, Katy Orme, has also recently become a mother and has created content on the design of her nursery.
The blog also has a great shop feature which includes a wide range of products from some of the best designers. The great thing about the shop is that you don’t even need to exit the website; all purchases can be completed through Apartment Apothecary.

Mad About the House

The blog was originally created by Kate to highlight some of the great designs and pieces she came across but couldn’t fit into her journalistic pieces.
